Delighted to find that there will be a protest against those tax dodgers Vodaphone tomorrow in Newcastle – part of a wave of further protests across the country. The Coalition of Resistance says

As George Osborne cheerfully sets about slashing welfare and public services for the very poorest, the Vodafone case gives lie to his claim that “we are all in this together”.

This summer, the new ConDem government let Vodafone off a large portion of tax (the actual figure is not known, Vodafone say reports of £6billion are incorrect) after HMRC settled a longstanding tax dispute with the company.

The original Private Eye expose on the decision reports that one senior figure at the HMRC called it “an unbelievable cave in”.

Assemble at the Monument at 12 midday and bring posters, placards and banners. You’ll find some excellent resources – logos etc and flyers to print out at the brilliant UK Uncut website
